A yoga teacher references a book that sounds interesting to me: western psychology meets eastern philosophy.

I buy it. I open it. Oh noes. It's a book about chakras, that new age rainbow bullshizzy that makes me cringe.

But I keep reading and surprise, surprise, it's really good. I mean, sure, there's some woo-woo in there, especially in the "exercises," but if you're borderline woo-woo, like me, as in you prefer Jung to Freud and yoga to painkillers, then you might just disco Imagine my horror. I mean, sure, there's some woo-woo in there, especially in the "exercises," but if you're borderline woo-woo, like me, as in you prefer Jung to Freud and yoga to painkillers, then you might just discover that in this system, this grand metaphor, there's some interesting tools with which to examine your own life.

So if you lean to the east and are willing to overlook a few awkward exercises, then I highly recommend this book. View all 5 comments. Dec 27, Andrea rated it it was amazing Shelves: eastern-and-eastern-influenced , metaphysical-and-healing , yoga , general-wellness.

This book took me a very long time to read, and not just because it's huge. Extremely helpful in raising compassion and deep understanding of our broken ways. If you're familiar at all with somatic psychology, yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine, or Esalen-type therapies, this book will probably fit right in with your bookshelf and resonate deeply.

If you're new to mind-body therapies and the chakra system, this book might indeed be the only one to bridge the gap between esoteric and highly practical. I've read a LOT of New Agey chakra books and a good deal of Western psychology studies, but this book is truly unique in its synthesis of the two. Fascinating information, but most importantly, healing information!

If you're interested in chakras and yoga and how we actually think psychology , this book has it all. I'm a yogi, with a degree in psychology, and I've been trying to bring the both together and help those around me, but until this book, the information was scattered all over the place.

Feb 27, Teresa rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone, beacuse everyone is mentioned in it. When I bought this book 3 days ago, I had no idea what a chakra was. But having been plagued with a feeling that 'something is wrong' for the last year or so, I was led right to it. I'm sure the title had something to do with it as well being that I'm half Japanese- though opposite the title, I live in a very western body and have always thought with a more eastern mind.

Of course after reading this, I'm not sure some of what I have been thinking or believed all these years was really even me. Th When I bought this book 3 days ago, I had no idea what a chakra was.

This book made me angry, relieved, sad, excited, determined, and everything in between. It led me to another book, by Alice Miller which I bought this afternoon and devoured in 3 hours.

For the first time in months, I know I'm on the right path. Jun 10, Kelly added it Shelves: non-fiction , read-in , boldness-bravery-and-authenticity. Western white ladies love calling Eastern philosophy "woo woo" but this book is a reminder that the things western folks believe in in psychology and call scientifically sound actually comes from Eastern philosophy from centuries ago.

I have a huge problem with the word "woo woo" and other hand-waving belittling of anything outside of a Western Scientific Method of Belief, if that weren't clear. This book is a slow read and one that is fabulous. A great look at the chakra system, as well as how Western white ladies love calling Eastern philosophy "woo woo" but this book is a reminder that the things western folks believe in in psychology and call scientifically sound actually comes from Eastern philosophy from centuries ago.

A great look at the chakra system, as well as how western psychology slots right into what has been known and believed and practiced and followed for a long, long time.

I annotated the heck out of this and cannot wait to return to it again and again for reference. It's readable and approachable. Dec 19, Lesley rated it it was amazing. This book made all the western psychology I've read over the years make sense. The author describes the development of the chakras with reference to traditional western theories of psychological development. The result is that it puts the psychology in the BODY, and illuminates the reasons why the asana practice can be so emotional and psychologically liberating.

It's not in your head! It's in your body. And, it makes approaching emotional issues through the physical body seem reasonable. Talkin This book made all the western psychology I've read over the years make sense. Talking things out forever is not the fix for all problems or all people. We are complicated systems. This is a wonderful book for thinking about it. This is an amazing reference book to have on your shelf when you need to understand what you might have in your backpack that's tripping you up.

Judith has a a stellar reputation that is well-deserved. I appreciate the combination of the disciplines she has expertise in, and the sense she's made for us of the esoteric and the mundane in combination. Challenges in life might come from birth order, chakra blocks, unfortunate karma or any assortment of all, but this book is the key to unraveling wh This is an amazing reference book to have on your shelf when you need to understand what you might have in your backpack that's tripping you up.

Challenges in life might come from birth order, chakra blocks, unfortunate karma or any assortment of all, but this book is the key to unraveling what can be done, what to avoid, and how to make you fit better in your world. Jul 02, Dana Wilk rated it it was amazing.

Dec 25, Jennifer rated it it was amazing. I can't get over how great this book was.
